BMWBLOG’s Chuck Vossler went to Circuit Of The Americas F1 track to test drive the all-new BMW M6 Gran Coupe. The written review can be found here and it contains an extended photo gallery from the track.

    Man, that is one bad driver in front of you!

      True! Thankfully I didn’t have to ride with them. If we would have been at speed that guy would have gone off. You never know who you get stuck w/ for a co-driver on a press launch and thankfully I had a great one this time.

      Thanks for the comment
